Bad Luck Stops Kyle Chaney’s Florida GNCC Run
Kyle Chaney's Wild Boar GNCC UXC1 UTV Race Report

Pataskala, OH (03/15/2018) - Can-Am/XPS Lubricants/CT Raceworx driver Kyle Chaney overcame early contact with a tree to take a dominant lead during the second round of GNCC competition at the Wild Boar in Palatka, FL. A technical issue on the car, however, took him out of contention after two laps of the XC1 Pro UTV race.

Chaney started on the second row and bicycled into a tree going into the woods. After restarting at the back of the field, Chaney flew through the pack in his Can-Am Maverick X3, passing nearly every competitor before taking the lead. He began checking out when his car shut off and he couldn’t get it restarted.

“I took the lead going into the mud hole and checked out a little bit,” said Chaney. “That’s what I like to do: get out front early and cruise the rest of the race. Everything was going my way, but the car just shut off. It’s a weird issue and something we’ve never before encountered.”

The Hogwaller track was rough and rutted, but dust was kept to a minimum. Despite the difficulty of the course, Chaney’s X3 took everything in stride. His drive to the front was exceptional.

“The track was really good,” said Chaney. “There were some spots that were a little dusty, but for the most part visibility was good. The track got super rough and rutted and that was really good for my X3. There were some deep mud holes and some fast track areas, and my car was running really well.”

Though dejected at the slow start to the season, Chaney will go back to the shop, work on the car and get everything dialed in. He expects his luck to change as the series heads to the next UTV round in late April.

“We’ll figure out what’s going on and hopefully our luck will turn around,” said Chaney. “That’s two races so far with bad luck, so hopefully we can work out the kinks.”

Chaney will return to GNCC competition when the series heads to Camp Coker Bullet at Moree’s Sportsman’s Preserve in Society Hill, SC. That race is scheduled for April 21-22.
